Measure the furniture’s actual dimensions
We add the centimetres that enable the cover to be put on and removed smoothly. For most models, a few centimetres are subtracted from the height of the cover to allow for ventilation underneath. If you are hesitating about anything when measuring, please contact us so we can help you.
Adapt the height of the cover
The furniture has its actual dimensions, but the height of the cover can choose yourself. Position all the cushions and pillows as you intend to store them beneath your cover. Measure the height from the floor to the highest point. If the pile of cushions and pillows extend more than 20cm above the backrest you can choose to increase the height measurement a little bit. However, please consider that it is usually a good thing to pile things up to help water to flow off.
A picture is worth a thousand words
We would like to remind you of the value of taking photos and attaching them to your order. This helps us to understand what your furniture looks like to facilitate the production of your tailor-made cover.
Strong elastic cord
Every cover from Dryboy™ comes with a sewn-in marine elastic cord at the bottom edge. Tighten it firmly the first time you put the cover on and lock it with an accompanying FixLock (strong cord lock). You will not normally need to loosen this in the future. If you have an extra-long piece of furniture, there may be two FixLocks to facilitate the tightening of the elastic.
Securing for a storm
To further secure the cover, a set of Dryboy Storm straps are always included. The storm straps are equipped with carabiners at each end, allowing easy attachment to the loops sewn into our covers.
Simply attach the carabiner to the loop, pull the straps under the furniture, and attach on the other side. Done!
Some furniture such as corner sofas or dining sets come with extra Velcro straps designed to be wrapped around the legs.
Does your furniture have sharp edges?
We always recommend putting something soft between the edge and the cover when it is to be left on for a long time to avoid abrasion and damage to the fabric.
If you have cushions for chairs during the summer season, we recommend placing them at the centre of the dining table under your Dryboy™ cover. This keeps the cushions dry och comfortable, and the pile of textiles in the middle help water to flow off. Even though all Dryboy™ covers are made of entirely waterproof outdoor fabric, it is not ideal to have a puddle of water remaining for an extended time.
For a standalone tabletop that will not be used for some time, placing something small underneath your Dryboy™ cover to create an air gap is a good way to minimize condensation.
Quality & Guarantee
Dryboy™ is manufactured in an Oeko-Tex® certified polyester fabric developed for long durability and waterproofness in tough outdoor conditions. Our production technology means that we can avoid seams on the top of the cover, thus eliminating the risk of water leakage. So, when you order a cover from Dryboy.se®, you get a full five-year guarantee* that it will remain waterproof!
Our fabric: Dryboy’s unique outdoor fabric
100% Polyester 230gr/m2, completely PVC-free
A cover from Dryboy™ is therefore completely recyclable (when the time comes after many, many years of use).
Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class IV
This important certificate means that our fabric is carefully tested to meet high human ecological standards and does not contain harmful chemicals.
2.000mm WP (water column)
This is the measurement that indicates how waterproof our fabric is. Of course, this has been tested in a laboratory, but we also have an ongoing test in our production studio: in the summer of 2018, we lined a regular cardboard box with our cover fabric and filled the box with 10 litres of water. The box is still there, still filled with water – and still dry as a bone!
Highly durable accessories, adapted for marine use
A strong 6mm elastic cord runs internally along the bottom edge of the cover and terminates in a robust Fix-Lock that tightens the more it is loaded.
The smallest possible footprint on the environment
Firstly, Dryboy’s fabric is produced in a very careful manner, both in weaving and dyeing, as well as in the special water-based surface treatment that makes the fabric completely waterproof. Secondly, we utilize all the fabric from our extremely wide rolls; the pieces that are cut out when we produce your cover are used to sew your storage bag. Additionally, a cover from Dryboy.com extends the lifespan of all the furniture and belongings it protects by many, many years, so you don’t have to throw away and replace them.
5-year waterproof guarantee
This is a unique commitment that allows you, as a customer, to feel confident knowing that your cover from Dryboy truly keeps water out. However, the guarantee applies only if you handle and care for your cover in a normal and cautious manner, and not if it is damaged, handled recklessly, or washed with strong solvents. The guarantee also does not apply if Dryboy AB has had to sew a seam on the top side of the cover due to the design of the furniture or attach a cap for items such as a faucet or grill hood.
A Dryboy cover generally does not need to be cleaned as the rain takes care of it for you. However, if you feel that the cover needs cleaning at some point, follow these steps:
Dirt and stains can be rinsed off with a gentle water stream (avoid high pressure). If needed, use a sponge or a soft brush along with a small amount of mild detergents, such as a few drops of dish soap in a bucket of water. Only use cold or lukewarm water and avoid too much friction, such as vigorously scrubbing the fabric with a stiff brush. Rinse the fabric several times with clean water until the stain is gone, and then let the fabric air dry.
Do not use cleaning products that contain chlorine or other strong solvents.
Take care of your Dryboy cover, and it will continue to remain functional and look great for many years to come.
